Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: WordPress SEO by Yoast as well as SEO Plugin by Squirrly both provide a unique interface from which you will optimize your site and posts to rank better in search egines like Google. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.

WordPress SEO by Yoast vs SEO Plugin by Squirrly Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of WordPress SEO by Yoast and SEO Plugin by Squirrly.

To find the cheaper SEO plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for WordPress SEO by Yoast or SEO Plugin by Squirrly (as well as other alternatives).

Price WordPress SEO by Yoast SEO Plugin by Squirrly
Minimum (1 Site) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 247.00 USD 240.00 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 0.00 USD 912.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 907.00 USD 912.00 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.

Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.

  3. Great comparison. Other reviewers usually offered a subjective view of each plug-in (whichever they reviewed).

    I personally think side-by-side comparisons are better in this sense. It lets people decide for themselves which is better.

    Out of curiosity, which plug-in was your favorite, Thomas?
